Other differences between the Vette and the Formula Bondurant are the distinct lack of power steering, power brakes, and any electronics (ABS, TCS, Active Handling, and so on). The rear-engine setup's distinctive handling characteristics require less trail braking, because these cars are less prone to understeer. Once you turn in and are done braking, you need to get on the throttle to get the weight to the back and avoid a massive oversteer situation. The skid-car experience helps greatly here. Smoothness is key, and the Formula Bondurant rewards with a blast of a day spent behind the wheel-and a fitting end to the Grand Prix Road Racing course.
